Track of the Day: 'You're Not the One'

A cut from Sky Ferreira's long-awaited album

Past Tracks

First introduced as a feisty dance artist backed by Britney Spears’s most innovative producers, Sky Ferreira battled record-label delays before getting another shot with “Everything Is Embarrassing,” a moody mid-tempo makeover that New York magazine called its song of the year in 2012. At long last, Ferreira’s mythical debut, Night Time, My Time, will arrive October 29, and today she premiered the video for its lead single, “You’re Not the One.” A messy, jangling slice of '80s-inspired pop that sounds like it was recorded in an aquarium, the track’s production quirks come courtesy of Ariel Rechtshaid, arguably the year's finest producer given his stellar work on albums from Vampire Weekend, Charli XCX, and HAIM.
